Silver tarnish on lead could compromise the soldering, mainly in case of No Clean process. Make sure components are correctly packaged and stored. Check the vintage ( Manufacturing Data Code) and in order to avoid them to get old on shelf make sure FI-FO procedure is in place. etc.

weve hand soldered a few components that were tarnished with no problems, also the tarnish is electrically conductive if it helps.
